Yulia Skripal was raped and is pregnant

Summary of Disinformation

Yulia Skripal is pregnant and was probably raped. Soon, we may find out that the father is Sergey Fedotov, the third alleged suspect in the Salisbury poisoning. In this way, the British media, on orders from London, try to distract the public from problems associated with Brexit.

No evidence given. This is another case of pro-Kremlin disinformation about the Skripal poisoning. For more examples see here.

British police and intelligence investigations have produced sufficient hard evidence to charge two Russian nationals for the attack on the Skripals. These two individuals have been identified as officers of the GRU, the Russian military Intelligence service. More British public documents and statements on the case can be found here and here.

Recently, Bellingcat announced that a third GRU officer, under the name Sergey Fedotov, was present in the UK during the time Sergey and Yulia Skripal fell into a coma. This third suspect in the poisoning was identified as high-ranking GRU officer Denis Sergeev.
